I am Premsen, divinely endowed to bring you the news.
It's been a tough past few weeks--and, as a result, I have had neither the time nor the energy necessary to educate the public.
But, henceforth, forever, in perpetuity, I do.
Bienvenue. Bienvenuto. 欢迎. Willkommen. καλωσόρισμα.
Welcome to the Seventh Installment of ACES News.
Our tale begins with The Council. Following bloodthirsty and cutthroat elections, we have elected a chosen few to represent we citizens, to make decisions for us as a whole, and to lead our democracy to places it has never gone before.
The Councilors were elected as follows:
Lord of Naught-Executive Councilor
Johnson Adoulin-Soldier Councilor*
Congratulations to all the new Councilmen--may your luck in elections transfer itself to our little democracy.
*Has since withdrawn--reasons unknown--TheDevideo is the leading candidate for replacement
Secondly, a new debate has graced our virtual halls--that of the squadron limit. Currently, the squadron limit is set at a maximum of 21 members. However, larger squadrons have been confronted with the problem of too many members--and, as a result, have had to create multiple squadrons, each spearheaded by a main squadron. Thus, the Honorable Johnson Adoulin spearheaded a movement to increase the squadron capacity. It eventually made its way to the Council--whereupon it was debated vehemently. The debates, however, seem to have only resulted in a series of redundant polls and the resignation of a Councilman.
The debate over squadron limits, a debate born in fear of having an uneven balance of power, has also resulted in a new proposal by NachoTaco, now our sole soldier councilor. NachoTaco suggests that we institute an auxiliary legislative-executive body, comprised of all of the squadron commanders. This has created backlash amongst the more traditional members of our community, and a popular thread started by Protector of Justice Ltown rebuts many of NachoTaco's points.
Read about it:
The last few months has also seen the creation of multiple new squadrons. ACES welcomes the 22nd Delta Frost Squadron, the 131st Delta Frost Guardians, and the 120th Celestial Guardians into the fold. Should you need any help from the community, do not hesitate to ask.
Imperium, the largest known Star Citizen guild, has established an embassy over here. We are in talks to coordinate a gaming session to bring our two behemoths closer together.
Unfortunately, tensions have been running high over here. This has resulted in the loss of a few of our members. I'd like to say some words about them, and if they're reading this, we're sorry to see them go.
Sandcracka: You were a valuable member of the ACES community. You contributed to our cultural community, creating and sharing multiple pieces of art. You were an Explorer. I never had a chance to talk to you, but you seemed to be an easygoing guy. It's a shame something trivial was blown out of proportion. Best of luck.
Ryxtan: We get new recruits every day--and Alpha is coming up soon! If you're reading this, I suggest you keep your foot in ACES' door.
There was another member who left to find "more christian values". However, his name eludes me. Hopefully he found God in another guild.
And finally, ultimately--Operation Pitchfork.
Operation Pitchfork is now a well-known and celebrated plan of invasion on the edge of Vanduul space immediately when the game launches. Founded, created, engineered by our very own divinely-inspired Lord-Protector Sailor67, Operation Pitchfork has received acclaim from many organizations and thousands of responses. Roberts Space Industries even recognized the project, and honored Sailor67 with the title of MVP on Wingman's Hangar Ep. 43.
Come on, do you really want to live forever?
